RACE to Success!

WORK WITH SIMPLICITY, EXECUTE WITH PRECISION

RheoSense Academic Collaboration Effort

Through this program, RheoSense hopes to share the benefits of VROC® technology with Academic Institutions all over the United States to foster teaching, research, and innovation.

RheoSense understands the challenges of meeting evolving project needs. Viscosity measurements may be required even when it is not practical to purchase instrumentation. Contract testing offers little control over data acquisition and costs can quickly accumulate.

RheoSense is here to help with an affordable and flexible instrument loan program. We bring the instrument to your laboratory so that you can maintain control of your research without the high cost.

RheoSense Will Provide

  • VROC® initium one plus with autosampler on loan
  • Loan term of 3 months to one year depending on scope of project
  • On site instrument installation & training by RheoSense service engineers
  • Continued testing & protocol development support

Expectations from Academics

We will ask that you share your data publicly in a way that most benefits you. We expect that the viscometer will be an asset to your research program and hope that you will want to share your experience to educate others.

  • Purchase of consumable items & service engineer travel expenses
  • Distribution of data in the public domain in some form (e.g. conference presentation, journal publication, joint application note with RheoSense)
  • Participate as guest speaker in the RheoSense monthly webinar series

To apply, please complete the form to the right. A RheoSense representative will contact with the formal application form and agreement.

"Microfluidic devices offer several advantages compared to conventional rheometers in that they only require small volumes of fluid sample, they can impose high deformation rates without entering strongly inertial flow regimes, the absence of a free surface avoids evaporation, and they can potentially be used as a simple, disposable flow-through device."
